Joana Vasconcelos au château I

Arriving at Gabriel staircase in the north wing of the palace for Cecilia Bartoli's recital, we were greeted by this hanging 'sculpture'. Entitled 'Mary Poppins', it is one of Joana Vasconcelos' works exhibited until 30 September. JM of Oeiras DP said one would love or hate it. I thought it was joyful and colourful!

En arrivant à l'escalier Gabriel dans l'aile du Nord du château pour le récital de Cecilia Bartoli, nous fûmes accueillis par cette "sculpture". Intitulée "Mary Poppins", elle a été réalisée par Joana Vasconcelos et fait partie de l'exposition qui se terminera le 30 septembre. JM d'Oeiras DP m'avait dit: soit on aime, soit on déteste. Moi j'ai trouvé ça gai et rigolo.

on peut dire que cette expo dans Versailles fait beaucoup parler, moi j'aime bien ce mélange et ce délire.
Bon, n'oublie pas de mettre un cierge pour le ciel soit clément ce soir ;))) et bonne fête de la musique

The scene looks a little Escher-y. I'd like to see the work - I bet I'd like it.

You can put me in the "love it" column, Ciel. With the colorful checkerboard effect, it fits so wonderfully in this grand hall.

I rather like it. Especially the title - Mary Poppins is one of my favorite movies. Always brings a smile to my face. :)

Funny, creative and colorful, but...

Not sure I get the Mary Poppins reference, but I love the sculpture. That staircase was the perfect place for a pop of color.

It looks a little 'harlequin' Ciel. What a very splendid staircase, the palace is just altogether gorgeous!
Haha! would love to have a birds eye view over Stonehenge tonight I think you could be very right in your theory!! Hopefully it will be a little warmer there for their midnight 'activities' than it is here.

Loree said...

I agree with you - it is joyful and colourful.
